Attractions and Destinations

Marin Hotel is located next to the famous Venetian Fortress of Koules, at the entrance of the Venetian port of Heraklion and is definitely worth a visit to admire and photograph it. Within a short walking distance you will find three of the most important museums of Heraklion: the Archaeological, the Historical and the Natural History Museum of Crete. Do not miss visiting them and getting the chance to know the history and tradition of the city.

If you are a sports fan and you want to watch a football game at Pancretan Stadium or the OFI Stadium, ask us and we will provide you with the tickets you are looking for.

Activities for Children

If you are on holiday with your children, there are many options within walking distance from Marin Hotel. A visit to the theme parks “The 12 Labors of Hercules” and “Experience Creta” will certainly impress them, as will the Natural History Museum of Crete and the dinosaur exhibition. Finally, we recommend you to visit WaterCity Waterpark and CRETAquarium Thalassokosmos, one of the largest aquariums in Europe. The bus stop is at the Heraklion Bus Station, only a few minutes from our hotel.
